Star-Spangled Banner Trail
Experience the events leading to the Battle of Baltimore during the War of 1812. Be moved by story of an American victory led by brave, diverse, Baltimoreans. The triumph forged our national identity and inspired Francis Scott Key to write the poem that became our national anthem. Chart a course to Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, where Baltimore defended the nation in 1812, and the Flag House where the Star-Spangled Banner was made. At the Maryland Historical Society, read Key’s original manuscript. Hear tales of privateers who confounded the British at Fells Point Maritime Museum and the Pride of Baltimore II.
